Colleges and universities are facing difficult computer security challenges. Social networking sites, Web 2.0 applications, and high-bandwidth multimedia services have become the norm for campus communications, research, and teaching. In order to protect users, overloaded IT personnel are forced to deploy and manage an ever-growing number of security appliances. The cost and complexity of maintaining this appliance sprawl are propelling schools to reevaluate their network security strategy. This session will discuss how IT staff can deploy a more consolidated and virtualized network security infrastructure to secure campus-wide communications, while ensuring fast delivery of data services.
